I have a 2012 X45 and the wake is awesome. Im running the stock 1000lbs, plus the plug and play with two 750's and 2 250's. With 2000lbs extra this wake is huge. My best friend prfers to ride my wake rather than his loaded out Xstar with twice as much ballast. I ride at 80' @ 25.5mph. the wake is awesome
I rarley max the sacks out in the rear and usually run them half full and I think the waKe is awesome. I like just filling the rears which makes the wake extra peaky. But I only do this when minimal people are in the boat. The X45 is a very underrated wakeboard wake.
